Did the above test as suddenly I was getting an error message with everything I tried to do on Firefox. Chrome Ok. Rebooted PC and all seems ok now.

Quiz seems fine @Mi-Amigo (except Chemistry!!)😂

Pleased you managed to get the issues with error messages sorted @Cleoriff 

As to the quiz, a couple of head scratchers - or at least not so easy - this time, with a real mix of topics for everyone to have a think about.

I`ve now got this image of the regular quizzers trying to find and count the muscles in their bodies 😂

Yeh, I`ll put my hands up, @pgn , I`m a bad `un this time... but like your gif... which makes me think that other gifs could get very interesting or censored this time with folks counting their muscles 😂

Sorry @Mi-Amigo ..you would have to take your body to bits to count all the muscles. You might want to put 'nearest answer to'....😂
